No


+1. Someone used to complain about it. Was it Brut?

More importantly, the law school we attend won't actually get us laid, right? You'd think they'd include a mention in one of the myriad of promotional materials, otherwise.


Pretty sure at the right undergrad bar, it could tip the scales in your favor.

No

+1 but who gives a shit. Assuming biglaw lawyers are generally hired and retained by other lawyers so it doesn't matter. If not biglaw no one expects the guy getting them out of traffic tickets to have gone to Harvard.

True. Definitely don't wear a ski mask into said undergrad bar. Keep the dadbod jokes going though. That should help as well.

Maybe, but if you're the sort of person who feels like it will help then you're probably somewhat hopeless to begin with

Kink I have all the skills I need to be a paralegal for the rest of my life. In fact, if I work at it for another couple of years I bet I could make senior paralegal. And who knows? After another few years I could end up as managing paralegal.

On a scale of 1-Pirrup, I'd give it a 9.
